Creatine matrices, otherwise known as creatine stacks, are blends of various forms of creatine, sometimes with additives selected according to the purpose of the supplement. There are three main groups of products from these series which differ in their action profile and dosage. Pre-workout matrices are targeted at preparing the body for intense physical activity which will contribute to increasing muscle mass and strength. Post-workout products are aimed at promoting recovery and preparing the body for exercise, whereas universal supplements compound these effects.
The main ingredient of these preparations is creatine – the most popular anabolic compound. It stimulates metabolic processes in muscle cells, thereby increasing the force of muscle contraction, and the synthesis of new proteins at the molecular level. The most popular excipients are carbohydrates and amino acids which, in combination with creatine, are a source of quick energy for working myocytes and building block for resynthesis of proteins in damaged fibres. What is more, different forms of arginine, citrulline and nitric oxide precursors maximise muscle pump and enhance nutrient delivery to muscles. In order to meet different needs of our clients, our store offers preparations in the form of highly soluble powder and easy-to-swallow capsules.
